That Which Endures:

Connections that Transcend
Sep 22, 2022

Since graduating from the University of Dallas in 1991, much has changed, but much has stayed the same. New buildings have risen; beloved professors have retired. What endures is the lasting sense of community that transcends and connects generations of alumni.

 

One of the most important ways we can stay connected is through the Forging Our Future initiative, which aims to rally our alumni community in support of this great university and achieve 25% alumni giving by 2025.

 

Why is this important? As alumni, our support matters. Our annual gifts—at any level—figure into college rankings and strongly endorse the value of a UD education as perceived by foundations and investors. Most importantly, making a gift now is an investment in students as they pursue the true, the beautiful and the good.

We also hope you’ll take advantage of other opportunities to stay connected with the University of Dallas, including a reimagined Alumni and Family Weekend coming this fall, participating in alumni lectures and events, mentoring current students or even becoming a formal Class Agent or Regional Representative.

I encourage you to invite a classmate to reconnect with UD. Whether via email or social media, help spread the word. I know there are many who treasure their own UD-forged memories and friendships—they just need a friendly invitation to come home.


 

Daniel Milligan is president of the National Alumni Board. He and his wife, Kathy (Uhl), BA ’91 MBA ’99, have generously supported UD and, in particular, the Rome Program.
